Alright freaks, I'm having more Android trouble and I need your nerdy help. If that's cool.

I'm sorry about "freaks".

Baso my housemate has a Galaxy II and she ran out of space. I cleared her photos but her system storage has "12 GB" storage with 4 now free.

I've been through every single file and folder and cannot find where this storage is being used. I've checked the size for everything, and I'm even showing hidden files and folders.

The storage card is the same with different proportions of space. WTF, what is taking all this space?


Any help would be awesome, chaps.

Is this within Android's UI? Or Windows explorer? I've been doing it while hooked up to my lappy.

>pick up the phone in your hands

>press "Settings"
>scroll down to "Applications"
>select it
>click the "Downloaded" tab to show all apps that are downloaded
>press the same button you did at the start
>"Sort by size"
>the biggest apps are now at the top

Most apps will allow you to install on the SD card, but some (like the FB app) requires installing on the phone. Select each of the biggest apps and if you have the option to install to SD card, do it.

16GB isn't really 16GB. It's like 15.2 or something. Then part of that is used for system files and such. You end up with 12GB or so usable for storage. If you want that cleared completely back up contacts and do a restore defaults.
